Double wedding ring - first try !!

I have quilted a double wedding ring quilt before, but never pieced one, so I thought I would give it a go.  I had cut it out with the accuilt die, hoping to sew it on holiday with my featherweight, but as my featherweight didn't arrive on time, I didn't take this project on holiday. 
I take a day off a month and attend a local quilt group, so I started piecing it there on Wednesday, and after a slow start (mainly because I was chatting too much !!!) it is starting to come together after spending a little time on it at home too.
I really should be finishing up the Kansas troubles blocks, but it is too autumn/wintry colours and really not my colours,  I wanted to work on something brighter !!!
It is quite tricky, but is coming together quite nicely now.  Although I have yet to put any rows together yet, and suspect that may be a little fiddlier.

It looks great Janette, I was having a 'duh' moment last night but now understand that your pattern is more circular than square......lol....the colours look great! Best Wishes Kay in Scotland
